DARRIN ALLEN - BIOGRAPHY
Born at Pocatello, ID in the arms of a caring and hardworking family; around the rustic beauty of rural life, Darrin Allen had music in his blood from an early age. In church, at family gatherings, at rodeos and in his head filled with melodies.
An electrician by trade, it finally happened: the confidence to leap from his routine and begin singing in public. Not in the work truck, not in the shower, but in public. Response was overwhelmingly positive and some were astonished - “He can sing! I didn’t know he could sing.”
His first record, THE HARDEST JOB, was done in the usual hurryup- and-get-it-done haste of most who discover a talent. Still, it sold 3200 units to friends, relatives and to anyone from the work truck.
A new release, THE COWBOY WAY, features a more involved approach to writing and recording and leans on his own material with help from some of Nashville’s best writers: Hank Cochran, Red Lane, Kirk Roth.
A 6’4” tall, casual performer, Darrin Allen doesn’t bring a lot of shimmy and shake, just The Cowboy Way.
